Do you use different movements for short radius turns?

Here's how:

For the record, the short turns in the vid are technically awesome, but the metronome for the length of the slope is tiring. Even an SL course has variations.

I like this:

In the first video in markojp's post #123 you can see the difference. No real technique difference between long or short radius turns as long as they are carved but as soon as they start skidding, up-unweighted turn initiations replace purely tipped ones.

Nice to see finally some non synchro skiing. I like the swiss

Interesting how many skiers are a tiny bit weaker on the left-footed turn.
Nice to see some strong skiing from Lynn! (No Olympic gold medal, but a former 30-point SL skier.)

I do, too. Interesting to see how low the Austrians, Swiss, and Australians get.

Yes, the Swiss stood out as the strongest one IMO.

Alexander Taugwalder from Switzerland is literally jumping off the snow with each initiation.  

Watch him starting at 4:49.  What does he gain by leaving the snow with every turn?

I think he's just resisting the pressure at the end of each turn more than most of the others which leads into the transition and that pop off the snow. Resisting that pressure is what is helping him get all that deflection across the corridor which I beleive is the main objective in this run.

 

I agree both Swiss skiers very impressive as well as the Italian woman, especially considering the much longer radius ski she's on.

The Swiss and Austrian skiers traditionally use a lot of up-estension into transition. The Canadians do that as well. Seems to work pretty well considering.... never mind. Anyway, those turns are also sometimes called "trampolin turns". Gives him extra momentum, sinking through the cruddy soft snow to engage the edges.

Corridor Requirements from L4 course guide:

 

Demonstrate expert ski performance and steering skills in a 9 meter corridor run in brushes (black terrain).

Maintain speed in the corridor;

Demonstrate symmetry from side to side;

Demonstrate use of the full width of the corridor;

Maintain roundness through expert steering skills

The Swiss team at interski really were the whole package. They were killer technical skiers. They were fun, playful skiers; with freestyle skills and some very creative and entertaining passes on the demo hill. They killed it in the races. They put on a show for the crowd. 

 

Find the Swiss... (there is at least one Swiss hidden in the photo below - can you find him/her?)

Is it the one with the similar ankle flexion that looks balanced on a moving platform?

No - it was the guy on the right, trying to hide behind that uhh orange gate!

Normally in "ski-speak" you spin to win. That was more like MSNBC.

.... aaaaand even asking for help with funding to get people to S.A., PSIA has produced nearly zero content for it's members from the event. I honestly wish we could defect to CSIA. It's become apparent that the former is a marketing organization, the latter, centered on ski performance.

Ehh no. Not really. In skiing, you carve to win.

 

Spinning to win - that's at work.
